#1

My friend for his film class made this existential art vid of another friend of ours. Please give your feedback. Thanks

Memes have to be at least remotely funny, this one isn't.


#5

I don't think it has any potential.

It could possibly become a viral video (though I highly doubt it) but a meme would usually be made from something else, not created in its own entirety.

I just posted the Next internet Meme over in PWI. It hasn't shown up yet, but I suggest everyone check it out. I would have put it over here, but the clip is from the NY gubenatorial debate. I'll give you a lure. The clip is of a guy who is running on the "rent is too damn high" party.

Also, I'm voting for him.

Its a commentary on contemporary angst, while simultaneously marking the death of a pop culture era.


#17

Please be constructive :slight_smile:


#18

the other problem is that guy is too damn awesome.


#19

Oh so its the exact same not-clever thing lazy, untalented art-students have been pulling since the beginning of time.

You suck.

You fukkin meathead. Of course you do understand. UR TO BUSSZY LICKIN COCKS 4 HGH 2 EVN UNDRSTNDWHTISGOINON.

Ad homonym aside, this is an interesting piece of art. The level of complexity the artist is able to convey with a simple shitty rendition of "Beat it" and a slow zoom on a rather unfortunate looking fellow is rather impressive.
